Jurgen Klopp delighted with Liverpool transfer window
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is delighted with his club's efforts in the summer transfer window, having kept hold of his best players for yet another season. The Champions League winners have not been as active in the window as their rivals, but Klopp insists that is more important than bringing in new faces.
Liverpool have managed to keep hold of Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk despite rumours of their departures.
Klopp quipped: "It is a bonus just keeping these guys together for another year. We wanted to, they absolutely deserve it, and it means consolidation, pay the bills, play football, go for everything.
"Only in England, do you come up with new faces and to bring in more quality. But that was never the intention because we have a wonderful age group and they deserve to stay together.
"Divock Origi has a new contact and all the others have stayed – that is the transfer business I like. People may smile or laugh about it, but keeping a team like this together is not easy."
